Vodafone: International roaming rates slashed to $1 per minute for 200 countries

Vodafone has slashed its international roaming rates as the recovering carrier looks to reaffirm itself as an industry leader.

Vodafone's new pricing for international roaming will simplify over 20 different call rates for over 200 countries. For these countries, which include India, Vietnam, Fiji and Canada, roaming internationally will cost $1 per minute for a voice call.

Data usage charges has been slashed by 90 per cent to $1 per megabyte.

Vodafone made headlines for streamlining the cost of its international roaming rates last year, when the company launched a $5-a-day roaming add-on to its Red range of plans.

Now the carrier will expand the availability of its roaming cap to all Vodafone plans launched from April 2013. Customers on older plans will have to migrate across to a newer plan if they want to take advantage of the $5-a-day roaming add on.

“We’re opening this up to all our current postpaid plans because we want them to experience truly worry-free international roaming,” said Kim Clarke, Vodafone’s chief marketing officer.

“You shouldn’t have to adjust three different settings in your phone or buy a new SIM card to enjoy using your phone like you would at home.”

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
